Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs)

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) work alongside regular police officers, Special Constables and staff from other agencies to tackle crime and improve people's quality of life.

PCSOs play a crucial role in Safer Neighbourhood Teams, which provide policing and other services to local people across the county.

PCSOs concentrate on combating low level crime and anti social behaviour in our county as well as enforcing parking restrictions.

They spend most of their day where they can be most effective - conducting high visibility patrols out on the street interacting with the public, while also offering assistance to police officers at crime scenes and major events. 

Police Community Support Officers hold a lot of responsibility and each day brings new and exciting challenges. You must be able to communicate effectively and calmly in difficult situations, and to offer comfort and reassurance to the public in order to succeed as a PCSO.

For more information about becoming a PCSO, visit the Police Recruitment website.
